And because it is Valentines Day I thought I'd share my favorite Valentines Weekend of all...4 years ago I was driving from Harrisburg to Salisbury which is about 40-45 minutes. I remember talking to my mom and telling her that I was seeing snowflakes. I met Nick at his house and then he took me to the most cozy restaurant with a fire and we were seated by these windows that extended from the floor to the ceiling. We ate dinner as the snow came down like crazy. It was so romantic. We then went to a Valentines movie and when we came out it was like a blizzard. We went to his house afterwards and I eventually braved my way back to Harrisburg around midnight. I was reprimanded by his grandmother the next morning for not staying in Salisbury and going out on the roads. To be honest I probably should have stayed put because the roads were awful. We went to Ikea Saturday morning, had lunch at Panera and then I worked the night shift. Sunday morning I went from work to Nicks and slept a few hours before we went to church. Funny thing is I put hot curlers in my hair and they weren't quite cooled off when it was time to go to church. Nick refused to let me leave the house with curlers in my hair, needless to say we were a few minutes late to church, not something that he likes to be. That evening we went to a fireside put on by the 5Browns. It was awesome and they played the most beautiful piano music and bore their testimonies. Nick surprised me with a beautiful necklace placed in heart shaped glass bowls. It was an awesome weekend and one I will likely never forget!
This past year I truly have come to know love like I never have before. I'm blessed to have the most wonderful family and friends a girl could ask for. Happy Valentines Day to you my friend and family!
